Threat Intelligence

Properly defending an organization against the continuously growing, increasingly sophisticated cyber threats requires more than mere defense widgets. To adequately assess and understand the proper tools and techniques to deploy requires a thorough comprehension of all actors, ranging from nation state, cyber criminals, malicious actors, hacktivists, and more. Leveraging threat intelligence to comprehend the landscape is a key component in developing a proactive organizational cyber security strategy.

Deep and Dark Web

Attackers leverage the deep and dark web to coordinate cyber attacks, openly discuss vulnerabilities located in various corporate and organizational assets, brag about breaches and other compromises, sell stolen intellectual properly and financial data, and to anonymously air grievances against organizations they have had negative experiences with or just outright dislike. Brand monitoring delivers situational awareness and is a vital ingredient in todays cyber security strategies.

Risk Management

Strong cyber security risk management requires not only a technological solution, but a strategy led by its CEO and senior leadership, fully integrated into day-to-day operations and embraced by the entire organization. Every company must be prepared to respond to the inevitable cyber incident, close the vulnerability, respond and restore normal operations, and ensure corporate and mission critical assets remain protected and intact. Scott Jarkoff has a tried-and-true methodology for assisting companies to meet this challenging goal.

Cyber Security Strategy

Scott Jarkoff was instrumental in deploying one of the first sets of firewalls on two mission critical, global DoD networks in the late nineties. Since then, he has remained a key player in DoD cyber security strategy, having played a vital role developing cross-government cyber security strategies in high-level U.S. Government and Government of Japan plenary sessions. Scott delivers and demonstrates the nitty-gritty details of DoD’s defense-grade cyber security strategy to help organizations understand defense-grade security postures.
